Las visited a few years ago.

The reverberation formed by real walls and choir boys was breathtaking. Much better than a computer!

Doesn't worth 9£...better get a punt or take a walk in the backs. Catholic church on Regent street is something you should visit.

This is one of the finest buildings in England. Visiting it during evensong is an unforgettable experience. Some of the finest sacred music in England performed in one of its loveliest spots. It's a timeless experience.

What a setting.i spent most of my time admiring the ceiling and stain glass windows. You can enter from Trinity Street or Trumpington Street. I'd advise you to take a drink in with you for the break....or else you have to go off site . Wonderful evening of choral music. Attended by the the ever polite and helpful staff.

This has been on my list for years and finally the time came. What a treat. I have just read Georgina's review so no point saying the same things. The weather was excellent so we spent quite some time in and around the rest of the college. The only word is "magnificent". Walking down to the river and looking back... More

If you're in Cambridge you have to go here. Stunning building with amazing art on the walls, if you're lucky enough to visit in term time look up service times on the Internet and go for mass. The angelic choir and amazing building make you feel that you are in a truly unique place.

Two weeks ago, on a grey and chilly morning, a group of (largely) voluntary Stewards from St George's Chapel, Windsor, set off on a coach for a day in Cambridge, to visit two Colleges - King's and Trinity. On arrival there, sun greeted us, and we went to "the green coffee co" in the Tourist Information Centre. It was busy,... More

Thank you for your review. Good to read of the similarities and differences with St George's. Choral Evensong has continued throughout the organ project but services finished, as they always do, at the end of term on 3 July. Choral services resume on 24 September. The scaffolding is now gone and we have started the last phase of the organ... More

We were given a tour and a,special tea. Fascinated by the ceilings of the main chapel and the designers who created this master piece. The stained glass windows were replaced after the bombings of WW 2. The choir was practicing and we were not allowed to go into that area. But this is a must see.

I could have easily spent over an hour in this chapel .. each stained glass window is worth a major stop for the details. The architecture is really impressive -- I would have really liked to have an expert guide me through the history. The lack of time made us breeze through the nave and aisles quickly but the magnificence... More
